Country Picnic or BBQ
When city slickers grow tired of the city smog and the beach, they head for the comfort of the country to enjoy solitude and great food. Sometimes people simply want to get away and relax in a place where individuals still smile at strangers and where it is not considered inappropriate to lick your fingers. What is being described here is one of the most popular wedding themes of all, the country picnic or barbecue.
The odds are you already have a grill in your backyard. Borrow a couple of additional grills from friends and family members, and the food is all set for a festive, laid-back wedding. The bride can don a simple, casual dress, and the groom can wear a nice pair of slacks and a dress shirt. Everyone else can come dressed for fun because expensive suits and dresses are taboo at picnics and barbecues.
If your wedding is more along the country theme, purchase a few bales of hay and spread them out over the yard. The bales can be used as both seats and tables, and picnic tables are great when it is time to chow down. Wildflowers make stunning floral arrangements in this natural environment.
When considering outdoor wedding themes, be prepared for the worst weather even when the meteorologist has predicted the sunniest of days. Either have a backup location prepared or have those durable tents ready to go. No matter what the weather brings, remember it is your wedding day; therefore, it is going to be one of the best days of your life.
